Promoting Collaboration with students and researchers

Red Hat Research Day Europe 2020

January 23, 2020Brno, Czech RepublicHotel Passage
Research Day is a day dedicated to the research initiatives Red Hat supports at various universities around Europe. The aim of this event is to bring together international researchers, Red Hat engineers, industry representatives, customers, partners, and other interested people to share knowledge about the latest research findings. Network with research enthusiasts from around the world and move great research ideas into open source communities.
After a successful inaugural event in Boston in 2019, Research Day expands to Brno in 2020 and will feature researchers from Europe presenting current research projects such as encryption, crypto-algorithms, new forms of attacks, and work on automation of formal code verification.
We’ve selected themes that show how academic research projects are addressing critical issues:
  • Data-Intensive Science and Software
  • Security and privacy
  • Code analysis and verification
Research Day will take place the day before on Thursday, 23 January, in Brno.
